My favorite Preservative!
I've used this in my lotions, lotion bars, scrubs, etc. and I really like it. the Phenonip does its job by helping preserve products but you can't see or smell it. I bought a bottle originally a few years ago and a friend gave me some last year. I do wonder though how long before the Phenonip expires and I need to buy a new bottle? I assume it doesn't last forever and that after a certain point it would loose it's affectivness.

Works but has an odor
This seems to work well but will leave a scent in the finished product.

Hi Elizabeth! I'm so glad this preservative works well for you! In our tests and recipes, we didn't notice any smell in the finished projects when used at .5-1% in your recipe, as seen in the Rose Clay Exfoliating Mask on Soap Queen TV. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this further!

This works great in my lotions. I don't detect any smell but the recipe I use requires only a small amount.

Unpleasant odor
From what I've read so far, Phenonip seems to be the best bet for body butters, scrubs, etc. My only complaint about it is the smell. Even with fragrance oils added to my sugar scrub, I could still smell it a little. It would be perfect if it weren't for the smell.

I use this in my lotion products, and noticed it leaves a slight smell behind. I made an unscented cocoa butter lotion that came out smelling kind of like chocolate beer. I wasn't too keen on it, but my male friends really liked it. Overall, though, I like the product.
